Sayonara, Ev & Ocho. Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada's upcoming reality show has been cancelled by VH1 in the wake of Chad's arrest for domestic violence.

The Basketball Wives spinoff was set to debut September 3.

But now, after Chad was arrested for head-butting Evelyn Lozada, even VH1 proved it has some standards, yanking Ev & Ocho from its schedule immediately.

Hope that text isn't from Chad's side piece.

The network said in a statement Monday: "Due to unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

The show was to follow the couple's relationship from dating to engagement, but after the condom-inspired argument, we'll never get to see the magic.

VH1 billed it as "the journey of a charismatic and passionate couple's every step, as they prepare to walk down the aisle and into each other's hearts forever."

Or into Broward County Jail as it turned out.

Johnson, who changed his surname back from Ochocinco this summer, was also released by the Dolphins already, making him all kinds of unemployed.

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada has been convinced to come back for another season. She's so darn valuable, she was given an insane deal she couldn't pass up.

Evelyn was prepared to leave the VH1 "hit" before its fourth season, but she was given a package that allows her to work less, earn more, and get her own spinoff.

Even a Basketball Wives cast member isn't dumb enough to reject that.

Earlier this fall, Evelyn had made up her mind that she was done with the show after a VH1 blog post suggested she cheated on her fiance, NFL star Chad Ochocinco.

(Cheated with Terrell Owens, to be exact).

However, once Evelyn Lozada let producers know she was out, they really made a push to keep her. Guess you gotta go all out to keep your prized "talent" in house.

Her new deal requires her to film half as often, with the flexibility to work around her daughter's school schedule and Chad's NFL games, all while getting a big raise.

The icing on the cake? The network promised to spin off Evelyn and Chad into their own show, documenting the months leading up to their wedding. Hallelujah.

Evelyn Lozada swears she is DONE with Basketball Wives.

The reason is not because she was neither a wife, nor married to a basketball player. She's simply fed up and insists no amount of cash will change that.

Mmm hmm. Heard it all before. Like Sammi and Ronnie on Jersey Shore, she and the VH1 program always end up back together (and painful to watch).

Why is this time (supposedly) different?

Sources close to Evelyn say Lozada made up her mind after VH1 posted a blog implying Evelyn cheated on fiance Chad Ochocinco with Terrell Owens.

Evelyn is furious and claims the rumor - which apparently surfaced earlier this year and was a point of contention with the network - is simply untrue.

She feels betrayed by the network, which has since pulled the blog. Still, Lozada has already decided enough is enough and says she won't be back.

Evelyn is now looking for other opportunities and will focus on planning her upcoming wedding to Ochocinco, according to reports. Thank goodness.

Sources say Evelyn Lozada is quitting Basketball Wives.

And it's not because she's actually engaged to a football player.

According to TMZ, Lozada believes producers committed an intentional foul against her by divulging sensitive information regarding an illicit relationship from her past.

No word yet from Evelyn, but insiders claim she has already sent producers a scathing email because she thinks they revealed this affair tidbit solely to incite a confrontation between her and another woman on the show. Weird. That doesn't sound like a reality TV trick at all!

In other Basketball Wives news, it now appears as though Allison Mathis will NOT be replacing Royce Reed after all.

UPDATE: Evelyn is reportedly demanding $20,000 per episode or she's gone.
